Glasgow & The West

Ardshiel Hotel

A hotel built nearly 150 years ago for a whisky baron seems a fine choice for whisky connoisseurs, and in the case of The Arshiel that's a very safe assumption to make.

Proprietors Flora Grant and Marion MacKinnon lay on a smorgasboard of Scotch whisky options – including over 500 malts – in their Usquebaugh Bar and Lounge.  Guests also have the option of popping to the nearby Springbank, Glengyle or Glen Scotia distilleries, making the long trip down the Kintyre Peninsula well worth while.

On-site facilities include The Garden Restaurant, which serves Kintyre lamb and locally caught scallops, and the Arran Suite, a function room with a capacity of 65 that frequently hosts whisky events.

With a stoned outside area with a lovely log fire it makes for the perfect space to enjoy a drink or treat by the fire, whatever the weather!
